Attach azure managed disk using to a VM using chef azure resource

I am doing a scaleset with minimum and maximum of 1 instance. There is a scaleset for each node of rabbitmq cluster. I have to do it this way because rabbbit mq has data on it. I can't scaleup and scaledown. However when a VM crashes, I want a new instance spunup and then I want to pickup the old disk and attach it to scaleset instance. Attaching existing disk to scaleset is not possible in terraform. I have to move this code to chef. This feature is available in chef AWS resource, but there is no chef azure resource. Per our company standard, we have to use only scalesets and not create single virtual instance. Name of the aws chef resource is aws_ebs_volume. But similar resource is not available for azure. Please help us here.
